Khmer (Cambodian) Language Support
Hello, could Khmer be a supported language in Teams and other Office products?
Our workplace has dozens of Khmer speakers using Microsoft Office products, including Teams, for our daily work. Other local NGOs and business are doing similarly to improve communication and streamline work.
I see a "Khmer Language Support" request was requested in 2018 with 37 votes and declined by Microsoft with the comment "It can be considered later." I see multiple languages offered, and it is great to see other Southeast Asian languages like Thai and Vietnamese. Even Welsh is offered, noting the only around 855k people can speak Welsh (all of whom also speak English!). Cambodia is a growing nation of over 15 million with a booming economy and increasing utilization of technology. Khmer language support would be a valuable contribution.
Thank you for your consideration. សូមអរគុណ
Thanks Emi for putting this back in front of Microsoft. I've tried to get Cambodians to use Windows 10 and Office in Khmer language but they all say the translations are poor! Anyway, regardless of how the locals feel about Microsoft translations, I hope this request gets approved.
Please add Khmer to the supported languages! MS Teams is an important communication tool for our team especially during the pandemic, and would be helpful for uptake of the system in Cambodia.
Please add Khmer! It would be a valuable addition to the languages

Just correcting my hyperbole, not all Welsh-speakers speak English, many in a Welsh settlement in Argentina actually speak Spanish (!), and there are some who feel more comfortable with Welsh. That said, of the 15 million in Cambodia, majority only or most comfortably use Khmer
